Credit card snipers for IPhone

Does anyone use the credit card swipers? If so, which one is the best and how does it work out for you in the lawn business? I'm looking to get one for the upcoming season.

I have been using square in the past and it has worked well. Usually money is deposited the next day. I just switched to EMS because it has a cheaper swip rater. 2.25% instead of the 2.75% for square.

Typically as long as you do it before a certain time the money is in there the next day.

Did you have quite a few customers that preferred this method as opposed to regular billing? I'm mainly wanting it for the 1 timers.

Most of my regulars pay by check. Usually my landscape customers will want to use it.

Wells Fargo is one of only two company's that actually own the service the accept credit card. Chase is the other one. All the other companies have to pay to use their services. I got a card reader from WF and they only charge 2.1% and it goes right in your account that evening. The one downside is you have to pay $120 for the reader.

EMS vs Square and fees for AMX cards...?

Any more feed back on EMS vs Square.

The fees on AMX seem to be set different...unless I'm missing something?
